Photoshop has gone through considerable changes through the years and some older plug-ins are no longer compatible with Photoshop CS6.

Plug-in Compatibility

In general:

  • 3rd Party plug-ins that are compatible in Photoshop CS5 should be compatible in Photoshop CS6
  • Adobe provided plug-ins, and additional plug-ins, for CS5 are not compatible in Photoshop CS6
    • Photoshop CS5 Optional Plug-Ins (Mac/Win)
    • TWAIN plug-in | Photoshop CS4, CS5
    • OpenEXR Alpha plug-in | Photoshop CS5 Extended

Installing plug-ins in Photoshop CS6

  • Do:
    • Check the plug-in manufacturer's website for the latest version of your plug-in
    • Use the manufacturer's plug-in installer to install their plug-ins

  • Don't:
    • Do not point Photoshop CS6's "Additional Plug-ins" preference (Preferences>Plug-Ins...) at a previous version of Photoshop's 'Plug-Ins' folder.
    • Do not manually drag plug-ins from a previous version of Photoshop's plug-ins folder to Photoshop CS6's 'Plug-Ins' folder
